Ann and Bruce met in the Peace Corps in 1988. They helped communities in Lesotho grow vegetables, and always dreamed of owning their own farm. They married and moved to Takoma Park, MD in 1993. In 2008, they purchased land in Phenix, VA that would eventually become Nisani Farm.
Nisani Farm celebrates the generations of Belizean women farmers before us. “Nisani” is from the Garifuna language of Belize, and means “my daughter”. Our family farm grows fresh vegetables year-round and we take pride in our ability to grow foods using unheated high tunnels that enable us to grow plants that are usually only found in far-away places.
Our turmeric and ginger are a step above imports. We harvest our ginger and turmeric when they are still young, and strive for the highest quality, cleanliness, and freshness possible. Dried and imported products cannot compare to Nisani Farm's products!
Nisani Farm believes in knowing where the food we eat comes from and how it is grown. Our farm practices sustainability and advances environmental stewardship by refusing to use chemical sprays or fertilizers. Nisani’s choices make a difference in the quality, flavor, diversity, and richness of the food it grows. Certified Naturally Grown is in perfect alignment with our philosophy.
